  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Melt all the butter in a saucepan. Brush a 20cm soufflé dish with a little of it, then dust with flour. In the saucepan, stir the flour into the rest of the melted butter, then sizzle everything for 1 min. Gradually pour in the milk to make a white sauce, then add two-thirds of the cheese and carry on cooking to melt. Leave to cool slightly, then mix in the remaining cheese, the cream or crème fraîche and the egg yolks. Season, then add the nutmeg and cayenne pepper.

  2. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold into the cheese sauce, then carefully tip into the soufflé dish. Bake the soufflé for 25 mins until puffed up and golden.

  3. While the soufflé is cooking, toss the salad ingredients together. Once the soufflé is cooked, dress the salad and serve alongside.

This was my first savoury souffle and it turned out well just like the photo, was very filling, but good way of using up cheeses, used stilton, emmental, edam and cheddar. Yum.

I was worried about making this as I've never tried souffle before but it really wasn't too difficult. Puffed up beautifully. I served with the salad and a spiced pear chutney which complimented it very well.
